Northwood - City council splits vote on Redflex traffic cameras

Northwood council voted 4-3 last week in support of a new, three year contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., of Arizona, which operates the automated photo speed and red light enforcement cameras at two intersections.

The previous contract was set to expire on April 24.

The city will receive a greater share of the revenue received from traffic citations issued as a result of the cameras, which are installed at the intersections of Woodville and Lemoyne roads, and at Wales and Oregon roads.

Council members voting in favor of continuing with the traffic cameras were Jim Barton, Mike Myers, Connie Hughes, and Dave Gallaher.

Voting against the contract were Councilmen Ed Schimmel, Dean Edwards, and Randy Kozina.

The city last year discontinued the operation of its speed van, a mobile vehicle that cited motorists for speeding.

American Cold Forge plans to invest about $2 million in the facility and equipment for manufacturing parts for the automotive industry.

Company owners have estimated about 22 full-time jobs will be created.

D&D Welding had been located at the site at 5650 Woodville Road in Lake Township.

 
Northwood eyes reallocation of tax collections

Northwood City Council at a meeting March 25 gave first reading to an ordinance that would amend the city’s taxation code to eliminate the 10 percent income tax disbursement into the capital replacement fund. Those funds, which total approximately $1 million, would be reallocated into the general fund if council votes for final passage.

The city currently disburses 70 percent of income taxes into the general fund, 20 percent into the capital improvements fund, and 10 percent into the capital replacement fund.

If the capital replacement fund is eliminated, 80 percent of the income tax would be disbursed into the general fund, and 20 percent would continue to be disbursed into the capital improvements fund.
